Until recently, science as a school subject has been unknown at the primary school level in most countries of the Third World. Even at the secondary school level where science has been taught for a number of years in Commonwealth African countries, the subject has still not made much impact at the classroom level partly because of the non-availability, inadequacy and ineffective utilisation of teaching aids and equipment.

This is a report of a seminar-workshop, which was the second in the series of such meetings on the theme of low-cost science equipment. Detailed discussions were held on the broad topics treated at the first seminar, paying special attention to the strategies for production and use of low-cost equipment in the African context.



Address at the Opening Ceremony by the Honourable Ndugu Nicholas Kuhanga Minister for National Education

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you all at this seminar/workshop on Low-Cost Science Teaching Equipment, the first of its kind to be held in the country. We are told that the Commonwealth Secretariat organized a similar seminar in the Bahamas last year and that this is the second one. Indeed we feel greatly honoured to host this very important seminar/workshop.
